Battle with cancer is each to its own. While some succumb to it, others emerge survivors. Here is a story of a 28-year-old who recently fought out the disease and came out a winner.

On January 29, a journalist by the name of Michael Perchick first broke the news of getting diagnosed with cancer on Twitter.

His tweet read,” LIFE UPDATE: I’m 28 years old and was just diagnosed with cancer.And in four months, I’ll be a 28-year-old who beat cancer. Let’s fight!”

Perchick who has positively lived up to his words of prophecy wanted to share the news of his survival.

He pinned his January tweet, on Friday, and updated his followers on the micro-blogging site. Perchick wrote, “LIFE UPDATE: I was right.”

An optimistic Perchick also penned a note of hope and strength ahead of his treatment on Facebook.

“While the next several months will be difficult, my prognosis is excellent and I am comforted by all the love and support I have received from family and friends. Until then, I’ll leave you with one simple promise: I will beat it (sic),” read his post.

Now, several well-wishers on Twitter have been congratulating him, since Perchick made the happy announcement.
